I can definitely say that every day is different. Whether it's meeting growers or suppliers, each day throws new challenges giving me plenty to work on. Everyone pulls together for the same aim, keeping costs low so that customers save more. I love walking into store and seeing my designs and the smile that customers have when they choose their bouquet.
During my time at IPL there has been a huge amount of change. You really are made to feel part of a team that work together and strive to make a difference. With challenge comes opportunity for development and progression. Here at IPL we pride ourselves on the fact we promote from within.
IPL is a great place to work. It has a fantastic atmosphere which is lively, challenging and friendly. I get to work with highly-motivated and ambitious people all day long which I find very rewarding.
Every day is different and you get to work with a great bunch of people. It can be challenging but there is always someone there to encourage or support you when you need. Our investment in people, systems and infrastructure also means that we will only get better and the future looks pretty exciting!
I joined following 14 years with the wider Asda and Walmart group. Following my work in supply chain roles, I now work in the productivity and measurement team. I thoroughly enjoy working for IPL as it offers broad opportunities to educate myself on multiple facets of our business, from agronomy, negotiating, transportation, factory operations or finance.
IPL have helped me to develop professionally and have given me opportunities to progress through the business. It’s a supportive and hard working environment where everyone strives to deliver for Asda customers. You don’t stay in a business for 13 years unless you enjoy the ethics, the work and the fun as well!
